The honey bucket- 1972 510 4 door build

Recommended Posts

You're making great progress, I'm enjoying this.

 

Thanks!

 

Progress it is... Also issue #5,542,654,453:

For some reason the left quarter panel does not line up with the rear valance when it's bolted to the bumper rail... not sure how this happened since the quarters are both the same size and the rails are too. Maybe the valence is bent. Either way this is a pain.

hello rear end -

The plug welds are tough on the paper thin sides of the panel so just tacking those up for now until i build a little thickness to actually plug em.

Now I need to do the same with the valence but underneath the car . . . This will suck, any tips for plug welding upside down?  :geek:

Reduce your voltage slightly compared to normal welding

Dang, when I have 3 people on mine, it rubs. No tire rubbing?

I raised it about 1" in the rear in preparation and it did fine, no rubbing. Tires are 185's so pretty narrow.

Made a little video for the quarter panel replacement: 

 

It's not much but it was pretty fun to make. 

Cheers!

I remember seeing this at blue lake. It's come a long way since I saw it at the DNW club meeting at Stevens shop. Cool video!

Little update: not a whole lot has changed since summer but I also realized I never updated this thread so here's a couple pictures.

Winter is here now, so that means a lot of garage time for the 510. Hoping to finish sealing everything, grind the seams smooth and paint match the yellow in the next couple months! stoked!
